Seeing through red vs. blue

In the article "Election Day Surprises in the Schizophrenic West," HCN has done something that none of the national news sources has done (HCN, 11/22/04: Election Day Surprises in the Schizophrenic West). You have gone beyond the red/blue label for states and given an excellent summary of the November election results. It is rather sad that the national networks, newspapers, and news magazines still think that political boundaries denote some sort of unified political consensus. I guess that is easier (lazier) to use the brush of simplification.

Thank you for a breath of reality.
